A private hospital, in Orpington, has announced plans for a £3million upgrade project.
BMI Chelsfield Park Hospital, in Bucks Cross Road, will begin improving patient and staff facilities in January - with work expected to last for aorund 14 months.
The upgrade is focused in the older parts of the hospital, originally built in the early part of the 19th century when the building was used as a rectory.
It was first used as a hospital during the Second World War, and turned into a country house hotel - which it remained until the early 1980s.
Ruth Hoadley, executive director at the hospital, said: “We are very excited to share our plans with the local community and delighted that work is progressing on creating the next chapter in BMI Chelsfield Park Hospital’s history.
“While this is an exciting development our commitment remains on the provision of clinical expertise and quality care provided to our patients and our aim is to keep any disruption to an absolute minimum.”
The project will see a new open-plan reception and waiting area, fully refurbished outpatients department, improved patient bedroom facilities and an extended assisted conception unit.
